T.J. Harris presents the IT department’s monthly report to the Commissioners Court during Tuesday’s meeting.

After reviewing the 2019 audit report for Washington County, commissioners were pleased with the conservative actions the county’s budget has taken, especially toward the rainy day fund.

The report shows that the county’s rainy day general fund has enough to cover 48.6% of yearly expenditures. This means that if a total shutdown becomes a necessity, the county has enough in savings to continue operations for about six months.
